Melbourne Cup 2017

Tuesday 7th of November

If your Melbourne Cup plans are still up in the air, they won't be furlong!

We have a pretty decent track record when it comes to Melbourne Cup celebrations. But we are always keen to go that extra mile for the punters and try to up the awesome year on year. Once again you will need a firm hold on your facinators, because it will be a huge day!

Going the distance!
4 hours, the package goes for four hours! Not including the after party, so you will need to be a stayer. Let us unwrap this package for you...

Sippin' on gin and juice!
Thanks to Tanqueray our Front Bar will be serving up gin all day. Coupling it served with juice, is totally up to you. But according to Snoop Dog it's the best way to get "Laaaaid back". Also a big shout out to brackish water for facilitating mollucsc growth, because we will also be serving up fresh Sydney Rock Oysters in the space too.

Most probable playlist: 90's Hip Hop

No one puts baby out to pasture. 
With help from the awesome folks at The Essential Ingredient the centre of our restaurant will feature a massive grazing table! Cheese. Meat. Bread. Dips. Fruit. Everything you could want to nibble on throughout the day, all washed down with bubbles courtesy of Craigmoor Estate in Mudgee. 

Welcome to Party St, Newcastle West
Capital Brewing Co.  & Batlow Cider will be taking over the Beer garden and turning it into the party garden! This is where most of the revelry will take place. 
Live music from 4-piece legends Soda, who will definitely get your body moving (so a spare pair of flats may be advisable)
Supported by the raspy and bluesy sounds of Eddies regular Dane Fitzsimmons

Popping in for the day, Soda

Our annual yabbie race; The Hillbilly Cup, will take place inside "Butlers Racing Arena" (Our custom timber racetrack that Liam from Butlers Customs & Cafe Racers will be tacking together for us)
And of course a big screen to showing all the races
Don't forget the after party, we will be kicking on until our hooves are worn down to nubs.

This could be you this year

Some like it hot!
Canapes that is. Hot roaming canapes throughout the event, to keep your energy up for the home stretch (see: stumble home). Think Lamb Shoulder Croquettes w/ harissa aioli, Arancini w/ truffle, sage, parmesan & black garlic aioli, Beef Brisket Sliders. Safe to say you will be rolling out the door. 

Photo Finish!
But we advise getting your photos towards the beginning of the event as opposed to the end.  We will have a special photo stage, complete with props, set up in the Coin Op, feel free to horse around in there and tag the Eddies on any social pics your through up. We will be sure to find a solid prize for you. Also our vintage photo booth will be operating as normal.

These mugs!

What kind of Melbourne Cup event would it be without plenty of sweeps and prizes for 'Best Dressed'? So dressed to impress, but no pressure, we are pretty chill around here.
